New millionaires in Dublin and Waterford following Friday night's EuroMillions

The weekend has gotten off to a great start for two lucky players.

Two EuroMillions players in Dublin and Waterford have won €1,005,000 each as the National Lottery’s special Ireland-only raffle event came to a close on Friday night.

The draw was the fourth and final of the Ireland-only raffle event that guaranteed to make five new millionaires in Ireland over two weeks.

The five winning tickets worth €1,005,000 over the two weeks were won by players in Dublin, Louth, Waterford and Wicklow.

Typically, in every single EuroMillions draw, ten players in Ireland win €5,000 in the Ireland-only raffle.

In Friday night’s draw, however, two additional prizes worth €1 million were added to the raffle draw and among the ten winners of €5,000, two won an extra €1 million each.

The two winning raffle codes in the EuroMillions draw were I-LLV-87429 and I-LLV-10793.

The lucky Dublin punter purchased their winning ticket online at www.lottery.ie while the National Lottery expects to announce the location of the winning store in Waterford on Sunday.

“We are asking players specifically in Dublin and Waterford to check their tickets very carefully, being sure to check their numbers and raffle codes," a National Lottery spokesperson said.

"Our online players should check their National Lottery accounts this morning to see if they have a notification to inform them of their million euro prize.

"If you are the lucky ticketholder from Waterford, we ask you to sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize.

"And of course, as with any prize win over €1 million, it is important that we inform the winning retailer and of course to give the winning ticketholder the time and space they need to let this amazing win to sink in.”

Meanwhile, Saturday night's Lotto draw is heading for an €11.5 million jackpot, which has been rolling since Wednesday, 9 June.

The National Lottery has advised players to buy their tickets early to avoid unnecessary queues in stores ahead of the 7.45pm cut-off time.
